#SomethingNewEveryDay – Literally

Yes, literally, literally.  I, in fact, write every day about something I learned just that day.

Today, though, I learned that literally now means “figuratively.”  Apparently, if enough people misuse a word for enough time it literally changes the meaning of the word.  Literally.

Are you confused now about when I might punch you in the throat?  Will I punch youi n the throat at all?  It’s okay.  I’m confused, too.  Literally.  You know – the way The Oatmeal defines it.
